Sample Personal Injury Results:
$3.25 Million Dollar Settlement for Addabbo & Greenberg Client Addabbo & Greenberg, along with a New York City law firm, prevailed in a mediation in a labor law case which settled for $3.25 million dollars. The Plaintiff worked for a boiler repair firm that was contracted to do excavation work at a major automobile dealership in Manhattan. While the Plaintiff was using a blow-torch near an abandoned underground fuel tank, the tank exploded causing serious burns to the Plaintiff. Attorney Dominic L. Addabbo interviewed our client at the hospital shortly after the incident and we immediately began our investigation by obtaining statements from witnesses which were instrumental in negotiating the final settlement. The New York personal injury attorneys at Addabbo & Greenberg argued that the owner of the building and the general contractor failed to provide a safe work environment. Once again, knowledge of the law and persistence in court has resulted in a most favorable settlement for our client.
$3 Million Awarded to Construction Accident Victim. A $3 million settlement was reached prior to trial in February 2007 for a person killed in a construction accident. The worker was the victim of a fatal construction accident. He was an undocumented alien working in the country for two months prior to his construction accident death caused by a defective scaffold. His family received the $3 million settlement. The family of the construction worker from New York was awarded $3 million as a result of the case presented by New York personal injury lawyer Todd D. Greenberg.
$875,000 Wrongful Death Award for Incarcerated Suicide Victim. The family of an incarcerated Police Officer was awarded $875,000 for wrongful death. Todd Greenberg represented the family accusing the Nassau County Correctional Facility for the wrongful death.
$615,000 Awarded to Person Suffering Injury in Home Depot Parking Lot. This action was commenced after Plaintiff was personally injured during an assault in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Elmont, Nassau County, by another customer. The attorneys for Home Depot, Inc. wrote to Addabbo & Greenberg as follows: Please note that we regard the inclusion of The Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., as a party defendant in this action to be frivolous. Accordingly, please be advised that sanctions will be sought against your clients and your firm for the institution of the action as against The Home Depot U.S.A., Inc. and needless to say, any further steps by your office to pursue this frivolous claim as against the Home Depot U.S.A., Inc., will result in further evidence of your bad faith in pursuing the claim. The person injured in this case was awarded $615,000 in a settlement for personal injuries prior to trial. After thorough research of the issues by New York City and Queens Personal Injury lawyer Mr. Greenberg, and after years of litigation, Home Depot, Inc. settled during jury selection for $615,000.00. (NEW YORK JURY VERDICT REPORTER). Instead of sanctions being paid by Addabbo & Greenberg for bringing a frivolous lawsuit on behalf of a person injured, Home Depot, Inc. paid Plaintiff a substantial sum of money for his personal injuries, based on the theories of negligence Mr. Greenberg developed. Similar results are reported on our Reported Cases.
